Cumbria True to the Land
Cumbria True to the Land
  • Description
Tony Hopkins has made a painstaking study of the changing way of life in these isolated, self-sufficient communities. As farming suffers yet another disastrous decline following the ravages of foot and mouth disease, and absentee landlords slowly take over these farms, which in many cases had been in the same family for generations, he records the way that traditional tasks are being lost. These age-old tasks usually revolve around the livelihood of local breeds of hardy hill sheep like the Herdwick and Rough Fell, many of which are now becoming very rare. Hopkins also records the driving of flocks of sheep over the fells to traditional markets such as Appleby Fair. ISBN 1841143944, hardback, 265mmx270mm, 160 pages.
